of the nation's most politically divisive issues. issues regarding marriage, voting rights and education. shannon has a preview. >> reporter: monday kicks off the brand-new term for the supreme court and there are number of controversial disputes awaiting them. at least six of the nine justices attended the pre-term red mass on sunday. a tradition that started back in 1928 in new york. there were prayers for wisdom and inspiration for all members of the judiciary. on monday the court will consider whether nigerian citizens can sue shell oil company for human rights abuses. one of the most anticipated cases comes next week, a lawsuit by a white applicant she was denied admission to the university of texas because of the college's race based admission criteria. the court is expected to take up at least one case related to the hot button issue of same-sex marriage. one case on appeal deals with the defense of marriage act which the obama administration it will no longer defend in court. another appeal involved california's prop 8 that would amend the state's constitution so california would
. and so i've recommended that we rethink how we educate physicians and how we incentivize our young doctors to go into primary care medicine. we've got to fix the problem of the number of primary care doctors, there's no question. >> but, stan -- megyn: but we haven't done it. we haven't done it with obamacare. >> are right. megyn: go ahead, dr. segal. >> you're absolutely correct. the law does not address that problem. >> not only that, stan -- >> it will exacerbate the problem because it will add lots more people seeking care now with technically an ability to pay for care. so we do have to rethink our physician specialtieses, and i believe -- >> stan, stan -- >> delivers care in terms of using alternative providers. megyn: okay. go ahead, doctor. >> i want to make a point on that. i like to say there's two doctor shortages, there's the one you're talking about, 160,000 doctors short by 2025 according to the associate of american medical colleges with obamacare, but then there's those of us who are dropping out of insurance because we can't handle all the paperwork, all the restri
not college-educated voters. and so he -- but here's the thing, where do those guys matter? they matter in iowa, ohio, new hampshire, and that's why they're trying to close that gap. i'm not sure that talking about almost exclusively women's issues at their convention was the way to do that for democrats, but that's why you see, for instance, barack obama doing a radio interview. he doesn't do that many interviews, but he did one specifically in iowa about replacement refs which is, no doubt, a way to speak to that group and say i understand the things you care about. jon: yeah. and the president even sent out a tweet yesterday advocating that the refs get back to work. simon, the white males tend, trended toward president obama in 2008, but they swung back hard to the republican side in the 2010 elections. is there any indication that they're going to go back to obama this time? >> well, in the data in the last few weeks, i think one of the reasons you've seen the democrats rise across the board and particularly president obama's numbers is that he's winning back a bunch of those white
of milk to women. i think they need to remember that women are soaring to the top of every educational and professional field out there, the beyond all idea that they we talked to about birth control, um, that they want to be talked to as if they are wards of the state is absurd. and if the republican party can manage to talk to women the way they talk about men, that they care about the real issues that matter to all of us, then i think that's a party for my daughters and for my son. jenna: that's right. ten months old, right? he's little, he still counts. >> yeah, i don't know. [laughter] jenna: sabrina, thank you very much. some important be insight, we appreciate have having you on as always. >> thanks so much. jenna: here's a little context just to show you how important this is. 69.6 million women voted in 2008, 56% came out in support of the president. now, if you break that down, that's 38.9 million women who voted for the last time around. what will they do this time? so romney needs to cut into this margin. according to our brain room researchers, every 1% he can get into tha
